Profile Information

About Me:
Many lifetimes a musician, lover of all Music, storyteller, Bardic tales teller, vocalist, player of many instruments, beginning with classical and electric piano, Celtic and Aeolian harp, synthesizer, 6 and 12 string guitar, dulcimer, Renaissance psaltery, zither, recorder, flute, whistle, ocarina, drums [Bodhran djembe hand conga tone marimba] kalimba, kora, bells, chimes, and ultimately my own instrument, my voice.

I have performed music of many genres - Celtic Scottish Irish Welsh and Manx, light classical, medieval, Latin, contemporary, folk, gypsy, world, jazz, and free form spiritual and angelic - on 26, 32 and 36 nylon and bronze stringed [traditional] clarsach harps.

My music has been played in formal settings - concerts weddings halls churches temples receptions synagogues ceremonies funerals galleries salons home blessings ceremonies parties functions with choirs in theatres studio session work, and - mountaintops oceansides, riverbanks pubs restaurants marina piers gazebos streetsides coffeehouses on railway tracks in alleyways in fish shops on ferries on the ocean bakeries Chinese food restaurants in malls for demonstrations [Human and Women] in bowling alleys on trains and in train stations hotels elevators casinos hospitals hospices nursing homes in gardens and wheatfields and under the sun and moon and stars.

My musical partners are equally eclectic and yet disciplined, joining with me to create both traditional and contemporary sound. The harp is exquisitely paired with classical cello, with Uilleann and small Scottish pipes, with mandolin, and violin. I am embarking on a journey in the New Year with a gifted soul who plays many flutes, Tibetan bells, gongs, crystal bowls, rainstick and synth - beginning a series of live responding performances to a running visual array of exquisite crop circles and natural beauty.

I respond to the music the Universe creates for and around me, and can be found mixing it up... teaching Carl Orff Music for Children for Adults... in schools and workshops... learning the shamanic Way in Third World countries... at solstice ceremonies and star showers... marrying harp with the ancient songs of Canada's First Nations... using song as medicine, opening doors and building bridges at a bedside.

I am a curious learner, a mentor, a teacher, a lover of life, an active and a silent observer.
My vision of the future:
World consciousness, evolution toward sound as a healing element in all facets of life. People learning to listen to their own beautiful voice. Helping people love themselves in the most sacred way.
I am really good at:
Expressing the joy of music.
I could use help with:
helping spread the concept of compassionate living.
